The BlackBerry Curve is a useful, versatile tool for myriad reasons, thanks to its many features such as a mobile phone, instant messaging capability, a camera, an Internet browser and a day planner. If a BlackBerry user wishes to attempt a repair to the device himself, or simply to see the inside and inner workings of the BlackBerry, the hard case will have to first be removed. A common aftermarket BlackBerry accessory is a rubber or vinyl cover that protects the phone -- this cover will have to be pulled off before the hard case can be accessed for removal.

Skill level:

  1. 1

    Remove the battery cover on the back of the Curve by pressing on the tab and lifting up. Pull out the battery and SIM card.

  2. 2

    Remove the two mounting screws located on the top rear of the BlackBerry under where the battery cover used to be. You will need a No. 5 Torx screwdriver for these screws.

  3. 3

    Pry the plastic clip off the bottom of the Curve with your finger or a plastic pry tool.

  4. 4

    Loosen the two side panels of the phone using your fingers or a pry tool, starting at the top. The bottoms of the panels will remain attached to the phone for now.

  5. 5

    Press the tabs that hold the faceplate in place with a small, slotted screwdriver, and lift. The faceplate will pull off.

  6. 6

    Unscrew the two screws located at the bottom front of the phone using a No. 6 Torx screwdriver. This will allow the side rails to come off.

  7. 7

    Unscrew the phone's keyboard cover with a No. 6 Torx screwdriver and lift it out of place. Once the keyboard cover is removed, the screen cover will also lift off.

  8. 8

    Pull the screen and motherboard away from the back of the case. Your BlackBerry Curve's case is now fully removed.

Tips and warnings

  • Removing the central parts of your BlackBerry may void your warranty. If you have a hardware problem, take the phone to a licensed technician.
